10 of the best yoga studios in Sydney for when you just want to flow

yoga sydney

Yoga is a pillar in so many of our lives. A reminder that if nothing else, we can always return to our breath. Our favourite classes always reflect this. Damp bodies flowing in a studio, pushing air through their nostrils and sighing in unison. Ahhh. Yes, movement is at the heart of yoga, but as the world outside churns with chaos the practice becomes a place of stillness. Of clarity, calm and connection.

Here in Sydney we're blessed with a vibrant yoga community. As such, there are plenty of studios to choose from if you're looking to lay down a mat. Below, we round up 10 of our favourites. Read on for the best Sydney yoga studios for beginners and well-seasoned yogis alike.

Sweat pours out of you like an offering upwards and outwards at One Hot Yoga. Based in Potts Point, you can select your heat, with temperatures beginning at 21 degrees and inching toward 27 and 37 degrees in the steamier classes. One Hot Yoga runs both vinyasa and hatha styles with a session each day and if you're really keen, you can sign up to a dual membership of yoga and reformer pilates. Mats, blocks and straps are complimentary.

With various outposts across the country, Power Living has built a loyal community of conscious yogis. Its instructors are compassionate and patient figures, people you'll want by your side as you attempt more challenging inversions. Regardless of whether you're solar powered or hit your stride in the evening, classes span from 6am to 9pm so there's ample opportunity line up a session.

Slow down with BodyMindLife, the Sydney institution with outposts in Surry Hills, Bondi, Kirrawee and Byron Bay. With a program that dabbles in both yoga and pilates, a balanced diet is key here. Plus their airy studios are flooded with natural light and are a joy to practice in.


Humming Puppy

Humming Puppy vibrant on a different frequency. Welcoming to all and with a deep belief in paying tribute to yoga's Indian origins as well as the First Nations land it exists on, this Redfern-based studio rises to the top of our list. Classes take on a hybrid form and are conducted in a converted warehouse with sleek amenities and Manduka equipment provided. Good vibes only.


Be One

Intention is everything at Be One Yoga. All they ask is that you show up with your full heart ready to embrace wherever you're at in the moment. Tucked away into Darlinghurst, Be One has all the markings of a hardy local studio, polished floorboards, positive instructors and a flexible timetable.


Virgin Active

Bare with me, this addition may seem rogue at first. But as someone who has practiced at Virgin Active — specifically the Blight St chapter — this is a luxe yoga experience. Studios are tidy with Manduka mats and complimentary bath towels, and cool perfumed wash cloths are handed out once class is finished. It's quiet, it's peaceful and the teachers (shoutout to Kate) know when to push and when to encourage kindness.


Bikram Yoga

With "state-of-the-art" studios and lululemon tights, the yoga itself can feel like a secondary experience. At this Darlinghurst powerhouse, they've stripped back all the wellness hubbub, hell they've even stripped off their clothes. The only thing that matters here is the practice. Rock up, take accountability for your energy and dig in. It's a no frills yoga offering that truly is for everyone.


Egg of the Universe

A beloved neighbourhood haunt. Egg of the Universe will nourish your soul and your body with its yoga-cafe hybrid. With open classes, sessions focused on foundations and lessons catered towards prenatal needs, there truly is something for everyone.


Illuminate Yoga

Founder of Amanda Vella believes yoga is the language your body uses to tap into its inner power. Nestled in Wetherill Park, she's bringing this to her Western Sydney community and empowering them to step onto the mat.


Heart & Soul

Heart & Soul has been operating out of Cronulla for more than 10 years. What makes this experience truly unique is the way sound is interlaced throughout each session. Ambient tracks have been swapped out for sound baths thanks to its own Bianca who references herself as the "singing yogi".
